Limitless Mindset Secret Society

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Secret SocietyJR Pig SkypeThis is your invitation to join the Limitless Mindset Secret Society, this private community is a result of the really interesting conversations I've had with some very erudite Biohackers who responded to my 25 minute biohacking consultation offer, which I'll explain again below if you don't already know about it.

While the Biohacking forums online (Longecity.org or the Bulletproof Forums), are surprisingly good, anyone on the internet can join them for free and say anything. You've probably been a part of enough 'free' networking communities (both online and in the 'real' world) to know that the quality of connections you make, the organization of events and information is usually pretty mediocre - you get what you pay for.

If you'd like to more meaningfully connect with a higher quality (dare I say... more elite) community of lifehackers and biohackers I'm going to create a small, private community of people who have taken advantage of my Biohacking consultation offer, so these will be people I've personally spoken with at length and vetted, they are people who are actually invested in their own Biohacking and kicking ass in life, not self help junkies.

Personal Development Demystified: Apps vs OS

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Your smartphone is actually a surprisingly accurate metaphor for your personal development. You can do personal development either by installing apps or upgrading the operating system.
Let's say your smart phone doesn't have many apps, well you won't be able to do much other than make calls and look at the clock right?
Let's say your smart phone has all apps you desire but it's running an operating system from 5 years ago, it's apps are constantly crashing, it does everything very slowly, you can't multi task or easily switch between functions - you will infuriatingly be able to see all these apps but not be able to fully utilize them.
How does this correspond to person development?

Installing Apps

Is like...

  • Learning a second language
  • Acquiring career skill sets
  • Reading books
  • Studying philosophy
  • Writing daily
  • Getting coaching
  • Getting into entrepreneurship, pickup or social dynamics

Similar to your smartphone the more apps you have the more you can do.

The High Leverage Information Diet

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

I'm Jonathan and I'm an informationaholic.

You hear a lot of Lifehacker's talking about practicing a low information diet, indeed we live in an age of infinite information yet we have very finite time and attention. A lot of lifehacker's decry constant information consumption as a distracting practice. Bruce Lee actually had something really insightful to say about this:

A lot of people do get distracted by the overwhelming amount of information available at our fingertips at any given moment and it prevents them from living happy, productive lives. To combat this I've developed an information consumption regimen that is highly efficient. I present the components and consumption methods of the High Leverage Information Diet.

The Piracetam Protocol

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

{youtube}AjOfuQ2PicI{/youtube}

A certain percentage of people who try it get zero results from Piracetam.

Others will try Piracetam, get a nice productivity buzz for a few hours that's comparable to a cup or two of coffee but when they try to push the dosage up they get headaches, brain fog or run into a tolerance curve quickly. This is part of the reason why the Piracetam source I recommend offers a very flexible 100% money back guarantee.
However, on the other end of the user experience spectrum, a number of anecdotal reports speak in grand terms to Piracetam's capacity as a transformative upgrade tool for the minds of otherwise healthy, young people. It has an uncanny, yet frequently reported effect of bringing back once forgotten memories, both good and bad.
The good news is that for the vast majority of people who try Piracetam, it has a significant, almost immediately noticeable effect on productivity, focus and memory, indeed this is reason it is the most popular smart drug.
The reason for this inconsistency is complex, Piracetam, while frequently sold as a supplement, is a drug with a range of very complex interactions in our neurobiology. To maximize it's effect there really needs to be several high quality cofactors present in your biology.
The Piracetam rabbit hole really goes very deep, yet unfortunately most people who take it just barely poke their heads in it.

Piracetam, a choline source and ALCAR are a favorite of holistic biohackers but there's a specific protocol that should be followed.

Lifehacking Lying: 10 Devilishly Deceptive Ways to Be a Better Liar

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Lying750Deception and use of half truths are such a part of human nature that what's ultimately the most dishonest is to pretend that we are 'real' 100% of the time to everyone. Lifehackers, happy sociopaths and people with healthy egos understand that lying is an inevitable part of the human communication experience. According StatisticBrain.com

  • 60% of people lie at least once during a 10 minute conversation.
  • Men on average tell 6 lies as a day to their partner, boss or colleagues. Women tell 8.
  • 31% of people lie on their resumes.

Inevitably you are going to lie in ways big and small. This article will arm you with some clever ways to lie more effectively and less destructively without breaking the 11th commandment; getting caught.

Why Choose Pharmaceutical Grade Nootropics+3rd Party Verified Sources

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Capitalism

Let me confirm something you already know on a gut level; the supplement industry is a capitalist's wild wild west, a profiteers paradise, an unregulated free market, and consumers should beware.

While the ubiquitous white Nutrition Facts box you see on the labeling of packaging looks official, anyone with basic word processing software can create such a representation of the ingredients ostensibly in a product.

When you realize that no one verifies that the actual individual ingredients are in a given product, you realize how much of a decision to buy and take an supplement is based upon trust.

The Nutrition 'Facts'Fake-NutritionLabel

When supplement companies sell products to consumers they can almost count on the consumers not verifying what they are consuming. Sure the consumers could send products off for testing at 3rd party laboratory but that costs between hundreds and thousands of dollars. While there are some consumer spectroscopy devices coming to market that promise to disrupt multiple industries that prey on the voracious consumer, at the current time consumers have virtually no way of personally determining what they are actually putting in their bodies.

Pharma-Grade300The good news is that one of the really easy ways to make almost certain that you are getting the real stuff is to insist on always buying Pharmaceutical Grade supplements. Why trust Pharmaceutical Grade?

41 Denver Shrinks Prove that Psychologists are mostly just Leeches

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Shrinks-leaches
According to a University of South Florida study 90% of people who quit smoking relapse. I've been a year and half without a cancer stick in between my lips, so I'm justifiably a little proud of beating that statistic. How did I do it?

In 2013 I spent a few months researching the biology of self control and after interviewing several doctors and subject matter experts. Based upon these interviews and my lifelong interest as layperson in the biology of self control, I distilled 20 different uncommon, yet very actionable lifehacks for increasing will power quickly and effectively. I quiet smoking using about five of these lifehacks. I then spent probably 20-30 hours organizing a detailed a multi media guide to self control based upon these lifehacks. Then I released it completely for free (no signup required) on my website, Limitless Mindset. Since I want to help as many people as possible with this information I personally emailed 40 different psychologists in the Denver area and offered to send them this guide completely for free, no strings attached.

I made what I thought was a very safe assumption that these psychologists had clients who would benefit greatly from these kinds of high leverage yet uncommon strategies for self control.

So far out of 41 emailed ZERO have responded.

A Post Opp's Devolution: Part 6 - The Addict

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Jason's first thought I've spent all the damn day gaming! Now I'm probably late to my date with Astrid and she'll never want to see me again!

As he paused the game he self criticized... Jason you fucking addict! How much of your damn life are you going to waste with these sims?

However, relief flooded his mind as soon as he saw the time, 6:14PM I still have 90 minutes to get ready for my date and book it over to water fountain park! It's only like 5 minutes by auto taxi.

Jason was near the top of the cognitive enhancement roller coaster; sitting in the nerve center of his little online gambling empire which he had designed with sensory deprivation in mind, he was almost overwhelmed with sensation, sound and sight. His hearing was as sharp as a bat's, from his high rise condo he could differentiate the individual sounds outside his window that were usually a smörgåsbord of generic city noise; a car's squeaky brakes, a motorcycle revving, a metro train crossing a bridge, a car's engine starting, a woman yelling and a horn honking. The glowing of screens of the nerve center sharply contrasted the dusky spectrum of colors in the sky outside. The screen displayed various live reports of digitally quantifiable aspects of Jason's life; his rankings in various gaming tournaments, the performance of the investments he had made in various funds, emails and social media notifications along with a slew of biofeedback date, his heart rate variability, blood sugar levels even his proportion of alpha to gamma brain waves. In just a few seconds he could glance from screen to screen, take in and analyze about 50 different metrics.
I should really eat something soon! But... It really would be a shame to waste this buzz! He resumed playing.

The two curvaceous figures in the bed didn't seem to pay a lot of mind to the new intruders in their chamber. He approached their bed, they didn't react much, although one of them uttered in a low, sultry voice "Geia (yah)" - "Hello" in Greek, as she brushed her hair off her shoulder. He smiled widely and slowly at her.

$4100 in 50 Minutes: The Neurotransmitter Cocktail I Mix to Seduce and Profit

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

CasanovaI was on a sales call recently, I wasn't that confident about the call being worth my while, but I have a sales process I follow regardless. So I smiled and dailed, half way through the sales call the balance of my Paypal account had increased by more than $2000.

Now this doesn't happen to me everyday, in fact my experience of the business world and capitalizing on opportunity as been very asymmetrical - feast or famine; when it rains it pours. My experience is that it's not a numbers game, good fortune is due to almost invisible meta factors, which conspire in rare moments to create windfalls, when they do it's worthwhile to analyze why.

A Post Opp's Devolution: Part 5 - The Dictator

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

These games were incredibly focus intensive, in fact they employed a gamified working memory task, so that the challenges of the game took up your RAM-like working memory (aka conscious mind). Lots of players consumed absurd amounts of caffeine while playing to try to push the envelope...
Amateurs! I dabble with the modafinil molecule to augment my gaming skills, it's like being on 3 cups of coffee for 9 hours, minus the twitchiness, if I'm actually competing and really need to bring next level game, I stack it with a tablespoon or two of MCT oil, which switches your brain over to burning ketones instead of carbohydrates, tantamount to putting Super Unleaded gasoline instead of dirty cooking oil in the fuel tank of a V8 Mustang before a day at the track. Together they make you a scary smart, focused gamer.

The game began under the waves, with a tour of an massive submarine, The Neptune, the flagship of the Atlantean navy. An attractive, female lieutenant was his guide throughout the vessel as he interacted with an assortment of colorful characters throughout the submarine; gruff engineers in the propulsion sector, two tobacco smoking, philosophizing laborers in the torpedo room, infantrymen training hand to hand combat, two drunken sailors, hurling insults, in the brig who had been locked up for a fight, new recruits being brain washed in a training center and an infirmary with a drugged up patient undergoing surgery and a flight deck crammed with smaller combat craft. He poked his digital head into several shrines and onboard temples of the Atlantean pantheon, a few of which doubled as brothels. His tour also included an impressive map room with one wall covered by a realistically inaccurate map of the globe according to the leading Atlantean cartographers, in the corner of the map room two such cartographers argued about the existence of Greenland.

The world of the Neptune was a smörgåsbord of modern technology (like torpedoes), ancient implements of warfare (like swords), magic arts of the Atlanteans, and polytheistic religious iconoclasm.

The tour ended in a conference room where Jason's character was made responsible for investigating a remote outpost of the Atlantean hegemony that had been destroyed by a disaster of epic proportions on the Mediterranean isle of Crete.

A Post Opp's Devolution: Part 4 - Promises, Promises

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Jason strolled back to his condo feeling like Norse deity after defeating a school of sea monsters.

Astrid had embraced him long and tight, after Alejandra had insisted they had something to attend to and had to leave. In that moment, Jason had decided it was time to pull out all the stops and go big with this girl. In her lithe arms, every atom of Jason's body seemed to command him: Do whatever it takes to keep this girl!
"I have this friend who is a helicopter pilot. Sometimes he takes me on private, sightseeing flights over the city..."
He's my 'friend' because I pay him $250 an hour!
Her eyes opened even wider, and her face beamed curiosity
"Would you like to go on a private flight with me? To see the city from the sky. The lights and buildings are really beautiful at night."
"Of course! When?" She blurted, rubbing his upper shoulder with the tenderness of a telepathic masseuse, her face a vision of infatuation as Oxytocin began to dance with caffeine in her Antioquian hypothalamus.
"Uhm... I will call my friend and see, but probably this weekend. Ok?"
"I've never been in a helicopter before! I'm so excited!"
"You like sushi?" Jason was about to sweeten the already overwhelming offer
"I've never tried sushi before..."
"Well one of the best sushi restaurants in the country is not far from here and I'm friends with one of the sushi chefs. Sometimes I hire him privately to cook in my kitchen."
I only have pay him $45 an hour!
"I have never tried sushi before but I would love too, mi amore! What should I wear?" Astrid's took his hands
Alejandra cut into the intimate conversation, mentioning something quickly to her sister in Spanish (Jason's Link picked up "rich dress"), that Astrid nodded giddily too.
"I have a Gucci dress she can barrow." Alejandra noticeably enunciated 'barrow' as she lovingly caressed her twin's exposed shoulder "So she looks the part on your big night."
"Great. You will wear a dress and I a suit and we will have a movie star night together that we will never forget."
With that she planted a big, wet kiss on his lips. She was a vision of childlike excitement, twirling her hair every few seconds.
There is nothing as divinely beautiful as a promise, the moment after it is made, well perhaps except for the magnificent curvature and proportions of Astrid's figure.

The emWave2, Marijuana, Religion and Flowstates?

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

{youtube}UYYVAk-8cjU{/youtube}

marijuanaOne night, after completing a 92 day period of intermittent sobriety, I smoked a joint with friends in a lovely park overlooking the city. In between laughing, coughing and making plans to get snacks, I started wondering if - high on Marijuana - I was in a state of Coherence?

Getting my laptop, firing up the Heartmath software, connecting the USB cord just seemed like too much work (hey I was stoned!), so I just laid in bed and used the emWave2 (I seriously doubt I'm the first one to do this).

The Biohacking Industry's Looming Ethics Crisis

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Ethic Crisis
Recently a blogger in the Biohacking space, Mans Denton of TheHackedMind.com, was sentenced to 8 years in prison for theft of historical holocaust documents. Apparently Mans had worked at The Mazal Holocaust Library in San Antonio, Texas and he pilfered several thousand documents with the intent to sell them to the highest bidder online.

When I first heard this story, I had three quite contrary reactions:
Disgust - At this man adding insult to injury to an entire people, by trying to profit from the theft of such ethnically sensitive documents.
Fascination - The part of me that's probably seen too many heist movies and enjoyed reading the autobiography of a thief who stolen $30 million in jewelry wonders how it went down... Did he just pack everything up in his backpack? Did he have to sneak in during the dead of the night? Was it a one man job or were there accomplices?
Curiosity - What Nootropic stack was he on? What inspired him to do this? Is this a case of smart drugs gone bad? How much did he make off the sale of the documents?

itunes-signupJust a week before his sentencing he was interviewed on one of the voices of the industry, Smart Drug Smarts podcast. I encourage you to listen to his interview, he comes across as a level headed and articulate 'normal guy' (well... normal for a Biohacker!)

Thankfully the mainstream media's coverage of the story didn't make the connection between Denton's dabbling in the smart drugs industry and his diabolical crime. However, Mans's crime is an excellent example of how ripe a target our industry is a highly publicized ethics crisis that destroys the credibility of products which genuinely make people happier and healthier.

Biohacking 'Emotional Regulation'

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

The first session was a little awkward, at first the Coherence indicator was a major distractor, so it added to the consummate compartmentalization challenge that is Dual N-Back training.{youtube}SyKltr5_WDg{/youtube}

I used EQPro which is a new version of the leading Dual N-Back software from IQ Mindware and my friend Dr. Mark Ashton Smith, which trains emotional regulation at the same time. I will publish a full review of EQPro soon but basically it is the Dual N-Back task with emotional data that you have to either ignore or remember.
